wxPython: Unable to disable menu items on Mac OS X

Hi folks,

Under certain conditions I disable some menu items under my app's Help menu using the wx.MenuItem.Enable(False) function. This works fine on Windows and Linux but not Mac OS X. Just to be sure, I have an event handler for wx.EVT_MENU_OPEN and it reports False for these items using the wx.MenuItem.IsEnabled() function. However these items are not dimmed under the Mac Help menu and when selected, they still operate.

  • Status changed from new to infoneeded_new

We'd really need a way to reproduce this, ideally in C++ code. So if you could please make a patch to the minimal sample, it would be great. If not, please make at least an as small as possible example in Python.

  • Status changed from infoneeded_new to new

I've uploaded a small Python example since I don't code in C++.

I've tweaked my example to report status of the menu item when the menubar is opened.

This is fixed already in 2.9. It's probably not worth the effort to track down the fix and backport to 2.8.
